The think strips of meat used in stir fry are done very quickly. When the chicken turns white, or the beef brown, it's safe to eat, especially if you keep cooking it with the veggies and sauce.

As for the utensils, I often wash off any spoons or spatulas that have touched raw meat before removing the food from the hot pan, or I grab a different spoon. That's not necessary in something like a stir fry or soup or stew, however, because the sauce or liquid will be hot enough to sterilize any food particles and kill any germs that may be on the utensil.
